More New Flavors at Van Leeuwen!

Salted Caramel Bourbon
Now that summer is quickly coming to a close, I've been trying to get all of my favorite summertime activities in! One of those activities is eating copious amounts of ice cream. And with some terrible ice cream choices at my local store, and an overpriced good selection at my bodega, I've skipped both places and gone directly to Van Leeuwen's Greenpoint shop. And my visit last week yielded new flavors

Van Leeuwen's New Flavors
I tried the Salted Caramel Bourbon and Red Currant and Sour Cherry. I went with the Salted Caramel because I knew that I wanted to top my treat with some hot fudge, and since I'm not the biggest fan of fruit and chocolate, it was the obvious choice. I've had this flavor combination a few times, and this was, much to my delight, by far the booziest rendition. I would have licked the bowl if I could. I haven't tried the other two new flavors, Basil and Black Pepper and Rosewater Cardamom, but I did hear the clerk raving about the later. Maybe I'll change this is this week's visit.

Van Leeuwen has various trucks and locations now, so check their site or Twitter for the nearest location.
